The food was excellent, but the service was the slowest I have had in ages. It took over 20 minutes for them to take our order and an hour until my food came, and in between the waitress was invisible. However, hen the food did come it was excellent, and worth every penny.

Looking for a great evening out, we reserved a table and had dinner here. We both ordered the 4 course surprise menu with an accompanying wine arrangement. The amuses and the two first courses were great. The first two courses consisted of a 3 sample dish each. So you have the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of dishes. The... More

small restaurant, bit old fashioned and not much space. They have a terrace but that was full. Food was ok but based on ratings I expected more. Getting the winelist was a problem, we asked for it, didn't get it, tried to get the attention of waiter but in the end had to go to bar to get one. The... More

Having stayed on Ameland for two months during a working holiday, I have experienced many of the restaurants and other hospitality establishments the island has to offer. Unfortunately, contrary to most reviews, restaurant het witte paard did not live up to expectations. Once seated one is immediately confronted with the small scale of the restaurant and the more 'classical' decor.... More

The menu is basedon traditional cooking, but often with a mkdern twist. Like the goat cheese salade where instead of using honey, the cheese was flavored with forrest berries, that made the friend who... More

Last weekend I went to this restaurant with my partner. The restaurant looks very nice, and we were greeted by a friendly waitress. We both chose the 4 course chef's menu. A fresh baked bread with some butter was brought to our table which was on the house. The courses were excellent, with a menu like this it is always... More

Not a place to go with very small kids, but as soon as your kids are big enough to spend an evening at a good restaurant, this is the place to go on Ameland. Without kids defenitely the place to go! The White Horse is a very small and cozy place in the middle of Nes. Great atmosphere, very friendly... More

Such a small, quaint, little place you'd almost overlook it. Walk into a pub-like restaurant, with more quality furnishings. The food we had was really, really good. The service was very friendly and the whole surroundings made us stay for an extra glass of wine after dinner.

We really had a great dinner. It is a typical Dutch place with a great atmosphere. Would defenitely recommend it. People who live on the island claim it is the best place. Reserve!
